Newspaper Query   

Submitter: Sharon Cunningham

Date: 20 January 2004

I would like to have someone research the newspapers in Silver City for a trial in the town--probably New Mexico vs. Bill (or William) CARROLL. The trial took place on June 4, 1880, and CARROLL was charged in the stabbing death of Robert FAMBRO (or FAMBROUGHT) in Shakespeare on May 28, 1880.

I would like to receive a copy of the actual newspaper items with the masthead and dates of the stories attached, if possible.

Please contact me at the above e-mail address and let me know if fees for research and copying are payable in advance, or will you bill?

Thanks so much, in advance, for any help you can provide.

  Help needed! I am looking for a James ONEAL who died in the Silver City area about 1894. He is buried in the Redrock Cemetery along with some of the HARPERs. Any history of the land or the death would be appreciated.

The family says that James was very wealthy and that he was supposed to be a math genius, and that he would travel with the circus to perform math puzzles, etc. Is there any history in the area on this ancestor?

My great grandmother was born in 1893, and after her father's death, her mother, Louella HARPER, remarried a fellow named CARNAHAN.

I am anxious to hear of any information you might have.

Thank you!

  Looking for any information on a Thelma STRANGE, born in 1888 in Grant County, died in 1899 in Lordsburg, and buried in the Shakespeare Cemetery at Lordsburg. The Courthouse in Lordsburg does not have any records on this time period, prior to Hidalgo County being formed. I am trying to determine who her parents were.

Any information would be a great help.

Thank you!

  I am searching for even the smallest scrap of information concerning John F. LACY/LACEY, born Morgan County, Kentucky about 1833. He is listed in the 1880 federal census as living in Silver City, NM.

  I am looking for any information you might have about my grandfather:

Adolfo SEPULVEDA, born 1898; died 1940

Sons: Eusebio, Ramon, Enrique, Adolfo, Jr.
Daughters: Teodora, Cecilia, Victorianna

All were born in Silver City, and all married in St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.

I am looking for his brothers' and sisters' names.

Thank you.
